Spanish golfer Jon Rahm has revealed that he wants to take his form from the Masters into the Open de Espana this week, according to a report on Sky Sports.

Rahm was in top form at Augusta last week and finished in an impressive fourth place in the standings.

The world number four finished only four shots behind winner Patrick Reed and Rahm hopes that he can continue his fine form into his home tournament.

When speaking ahead of the tournament in Madrid, Rahm said:

I played really good, high-quality golf (at the Masters). It was very satisfying to play like that and be in the mix, even though I think I never got closer than three shots.

I just hope I can take all that from last week – the good play and good feelings – into this week knowing it is an event that matters a lot to me and hopefully I can play as well as I did last week.

His fourth-placed finish is the best he has ever managed at a major tournament and he goes into the event in Madrid as the highest-ranked player in this year’s edition, making him one of the favourites to emerge as the winner.
